Blizzard is expanding its Hearthstone options with a single-player campaign, titled Curse of Naxxramas. The studio plans on adding the new adventure mode starting sometime soon, over the course of five weeks. Like the Arena mode, you can buy your way into Naxx with in-game gold or actual dollar-moneys.

Naxxramas comes out of Warcraft lore, as a nightmare-filled necropolis. Visiting in Hearthstone will take you through a series of bosses, and after each wing you'll be able to unlock a chest with new Legendary cards. The Naxx adventure will add 30 new cards in all, and once you've completed the adventure mode you can add them to your regular deck. The campaign will also add a new board and various class challenges.

The first wing, The Arachnid Quarter, will be free, while the other four will require a purchase. A post on Battlenet shows some of the new cards and a look at the boss of the Plague Quarter.

Naxx is planned to release simultaneously across all platforms--including iPad, which isn't available in the U.S. yet without some degree of shenanigans.

      seems pretty cool, I'm glad they're looking for more modes than "go get beatup online vs. people with 500 legendaries"

      Woot! Love the single player in the game, it might be a joke for people who are experts, but I still have fun.

      I like the idea of unlocking cards through a single player campaign. The pricing structure seems strange though. You don't pay for the entire campaign, but for each 'wing' of it.

        Yeah it feels a bit too much like the exploitive kind of f2p model, but thankfully it isn't that difficult to make gold in the game so it shouldn't be hard to play all the wings for free (non-cash bought) unless it's too expensive.

      Just like someone mentioned on that thread, I would love to see a Raid or Dungeon mode in this game like the ones they had on the TCG where 3-5 players would join up vs an overpowered AI Boss and his special minions.
